Compix Media to showcase AutoCast v2.1 graphics package
Compix Media will feature its newly released AutoCast version 2.1, a Windows-based application that creates and automates playlists of video graphics created with Compix’s GenCG software, during NAB2008.
With any Compix live video graphics system, AutoCast enables users to create graphics templates containing Alias objects, or place holders, that specify dynamic text and image positions within the template.
Text and images from simple text files within an application or from external sources such as ODBC databases, Web sites and Excel files are integrated by AutoCast into the template. This integration can be performed manually or through an automation option. Once the playlist is built, AutoCast sequences and cues each integrated graphic image for live playout.
